Unable to afford treatment

As the title states I have been unable to afford treatment… I am 56 years old I found out I had hep c in 2005 when I donated blood. I was shocked and scared so I was very quick to go to doctor and seek treatment. Unfortunately I was unable to afford the copay that year for treatment of ribavirin and isotope. Time just kept passing by ..I pursued treatment again in 2014 I had to start at square one again with testing, ultrasound, finally to get to the spot where I start treatment. My insurance denied. So I’m thinking some of us will eventually suffer and die from this disease and some of us will be afforded all the best treatments and extend they’re lives.
